Parking for Def Leppard/Motley Crue Concert at the JMA Wireless Dome

Syracuse University’s Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) will make a temporary change to campus traffic patterns following the conclusion of the Def Leppard/ Motley Crue concert at the JMA Wireless Dome on Saturday, August 5, 2023.

Just as they did after the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in April, as the concert ends, PTS and the Syracuse Police Department will close Comstock Avenue to all traffic except parking shuttles, which will travel between the College Place bus stop, the Colvin Street and Comstock Avenue lots, and the Skytop Lot.

The concert is anticipated to end between 10 and 11 p.m., and at that time, PTS will direct all traffic away from Comstock Avenue between Waverly Avenue and East Colvin Street. This will allow for the efficient exit and transportation of the concert attendees from the shuttle stop at College Place to their parking lots on South Campus.

The road will reopen as soon as the concert shuttles are cleared. Regular shuttles to South Campus and other campus shuttles will continue to run during and after the event, though arrivals and departures may be delayed due to the large amount of vehicular traffic in the University area.

Day-of Parking Information

Pay parking is available at several locations around campus, including:

  • Comstock (Permits only)/Colvin Lots: $25 per car, includes free shuttle service to and from College Place
  • Skytop Lot: $25 per car, includes free shuttle service to and from College Place
  • University Avenue Garage and Comstock Avenue Garage: $35 per car, please note that garages close two hours after the event ends
  • Accessible parking for those with a nationally-recognized handicap placard or license plate will be available at the Skytop Lot for $25per car, which includes free shuttle service to and from Gate A of the JMA Wireless Dome

Parking information for Syracuse University students, faculty, and staff with existing University parking permits: If you plan to attend the concert, your existing parking pass will be honored in University Avenue Garage, Comstock Avenue Garage, University Avenue North and South lots, and the Irving Ave. Hill lot, if space is available.

All parking is cashless. Customers may pay via credit card (including tap and pay), or through Google Pay or Apple Pay.

Please ensure you arrive early, as traffic may be heavy around the time of the event. Have payment ready for the lot attendants, to ensure an efficient flow of traffic.

Euclid Avenue and College Place Intersection Closure Scheduled for Week of July 3

This week, the Office of Campus Planning, Design and Construction will reconstruct the intersection of College Place, Euclid Avenue and Sims Drive. The existing brick pavers will be removed and replaced with asphalt. This work will begin Thursday, July 6, and should conclude before Monday, July 10. The project will require the intersection to be closed to all thru-traffic.

Euclid Avenue will be closed between College Place and Comstock Avenue. Traffic to and from any buildings on Sims Drive or Forestry Drive, including the JMA Wireless Dome and the Barnes Center at The Arch, will need to access these facilities from Irving Avenue and East Raynor Avenue.

While the work is underway, permit holders for the College Place, Lyman-Hinds, Goldstein Alumni and Faculty Center parking lots will enter and exit via University Place. There will be a temporary bus stop on Comstock Avenue for Centro buses and University trolleys.

Delays in the proposed work may occur as a result of weather and/or unforeseen circumstances. In the event there is a significant delay, we will issue revised information as soon as possible.

Members of the campus community may contact Maxwell Perrin at 315.807.3213 or with any questions or concerns.
